he’s phenomenal. a freak, but a phenomenal freak.

ernie had his annual vet visit/vaccination trip yesterday. first of all, this dog freakin’ loves going to the vet. even after his minisurgery last year, he still loves it.

granted, he isn’t crazy about having his temp taken rectally, but even then, he still loves the vet, the techs, and running around the exam room. no matter where we’ve lived or who the vet is. Loves. It.

but he does want to eat other dogs, cats, and children, so that’s still a problem, requiring us to get the first or last appointment of the day. but he’s healthy an he’s lost 8 lbs from last year (he was slightly chubby) and now he’s a prefect weight, and his vet said his weight loss was “phenomenal”.

it’s easier to just not give him treats when he wants them than it is for me to not give myself treats when i want them, because it’s not me wanting them when he wants them

or something.

  1. My children are big fans of the dentist. My daughter, at three years old, just loves going in to see them.

    Now I was never afraid of the dentist, but I didn’t get excited about getting to go see him. My kids are giddy at the idea.

    Some things are just beyond me. Kids and dentists, dogs and vets.

  2. yeah, there’s something about maintaining a firm stance when we’re withholding for someone else’s sake, when you’re slapping away someone else’s hand from the goodies….somehow it doesn’t seem to work on your own person. My left hand isn’t quick enough when my right hand grabs the donut.

  3. Our dog and cat gotta have their treats. Additionally, Farley usually wants to share some of whatever we are eating. He is old, so we pamper him.

  4. it’s also easy not to give him treats because he’s just naughty like that. despite not liking being probed rectally.
